The final countdown to Christmas is on. It seems like it has really creeped up on me this year and although all the gifts are bought, I still feel like I've forgotten something important. Does that happen to you at this time of year?
Today is our last challenge of 2013 at Freshly Made Sketches! We're taking a bit of a break to enjoy the Christmas and New Year holidays. But after this challenge we'll be back bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on January 8th with a new challenge and some exciting news! Sadly this is our last challenge with our amazing Design Team member Linda Suarez. We are all going to miss her so much and I hope you can take some time to pop on over to wish her well on her card making and scrapbooking travels.
For my card this week, I braved the White on White challenge at The Paper Players. They gave us the option to add a little silver and I did because otherwise my card looked miserably plain. In the end I'm not sure it helped!!
I'm pretty sure it's hard to see in the photo, but I embossed a snowflake then added the flags die cut in vellum. The whole thing was too much white for me so I added a bit of silver cord and the sentiment stamped in silver. The silver is kind of washed out in the photo, and you'll have to trust me when I say that this looks better in real life!
The Freshly Made Sketches design team have finished off this last challenge of 2013 with a huge bang because you won't believe the cards they've got to show you! Run right over and check them out!
